Tiger Woods will tee it up each of the next two weeks, having officially committed to both the Wells Fargo Championship and The Players.
Woods’ commitment to next week’s event in Charlotte was confirmed by multiple Golf Channel sources and first reported during Thursday’s “Golf Central.”
The 42-year-old later took to Twitter to formally announce that he is ready for another back-to-back stretch:
Break over. Time to get back to work at @WellsFargoGolf and @THEPLAYERSChamp. See you out there.

Woods has not played since a T-32 finish earlier this month at the Masters. A winner at Quail Hollow in 2007, Woods has not made the cut there since a fourth-place showing in 2009 and has not played Wells Fargo since 2012. He missed last year’s PGA Championship at Quail Hollow because of injury.
Woods’ return to The Players will mark his first trip to TPC Sawgrass since 2015. He won on the Stadium Course in both 2001 and 2013. This will be Woods’ second back-to-back of the season, having missed the cut at the Genesis Open before finishing 12th the following week at the Honda Classic.
After starting the year ranked No. 656 in the world, Woods is up to No. 91 in the latest world rankings. He recorded three straight top-12 finishes during the Florida swing, including a runner-up finish alongside Patrick Reed at the Valspar Championship and a T-5 finish at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
